Our take on the Korus Baton (Lightning™) by Crutchfield's David Brown
The tiny Baton enables your Lightning-connector iOS device to stream music to Korus wireless speakers.
Want to stream music from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® to a Korus wireless speaker? Just connect this Baton adapter to your device's Lightning connector, download the free Korus volume control app, and you can send audio wirelessly to the Korus V400 or V600 speaker from up to 65 feet away. It's great for tunes stored on your device, as well as apps like Spotify®, YouTube™, and even games. You can even charge your phone while using the Baton. Just pick up the Korus Power charging cable, plug it into the base of the adapter, and you can charge your phone while the music keeps playing through your Korus speaker.
